Senior Republicans Quietly Chanting, Lock Him Up

As the United States continues to grapple with the aftermath of former President Donald Trump’s tumultuous presidency, some senior Republicans are reportedly hoping that Trump will be convicted on any of the numerous crimes he is currently facing. This conviction, it is believed, would effectively disqualify him from running for president in 2024 and pave the way for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to take the mantle of the party.

However, both Trump and DeSantis are highly divisive figures who have a track record of oppressing minority and marginalized communities. Despite this, they remain popular among a significant portion of the American electorate, who are drawn to their strongman persona and fiery rhetoric.

Critics argue that both men are woefully unqualified to hold public office. Trump’s presidency was marred by repeated scandals, including a historic second impeachment and insighted a deadly insurrection on the nation’s Capitol. At the same time, DeSantis has faced widespread criticism for his mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic and his approach to racial justice issues, immigration, gerrymandering and trampling the rights of the LGBTQ community.

Despite their shortcomings, Trump and DeSantis have found support among the more extreme elements of the Republican Party, who are attracted to their uncompromising approach to politics. This has led to deep rifts within the party as more moderate Republicans struggle to balance the need to appeal to these voters with their own values and principles.

The hope of some senior Republicans for Trump’s conviction and DeSantis’ rise to power highlights the ongoing struggles within the party. As the country moves forward and attempts to heal from the divisive legacy of the Trump presidency, it remains to be seen what role these controversial figures will play in shaping the future of the Republican Party and American politics.
